2012 Soleil Anadi – Click above for high-res image gallery

Ugur Sahin Design has shown off more detailed renderings of its Chevrolet Corvette-based Soleil Anadi supercar ahead of its official unveiling at Top Marques Monaco, which begins today. The Anadi carries on a long line of Italian-bodied sports cars packing American grunt, and finally looks production-ready.

For those who don't recall, the Soleil Anadi started life as the Ugur Sahin Corvette Z03 Concept almost two years ago. Since then, the car has undergone some design changes, and these are the first detailed shots of the car to break cover. In particular, the car's rump has taken a giant leap forward, from a traditional four-taillight arrangement familiar to Corvette fans, to a sleek, gloss-black rear panel concealing the brake lights.

The new renderings also give us a better look at the car's flanks, which have gained a nice curve since the Z03 debuted and hearken back to the Anadi's Corvette roots. Watch for photos of the 2012 Soleil Anadi when they arrive.

      That's pretty hot. And finally someone took the Corvette and actually changed the ass end, rather than mostly leaving it alone. I'm still disappointed in almost everyone's treatment of the side vents though I just don't dig such dramatic and angular treatments that the boutique artists have used for that.

      Better than most Vette restyles.
        • 3 Years Ago
        Yeah, the rear of the Vette needs some serious love. MAJOR blob of plastic back there. Reminds me of the cheap old GM.

        Hope we see a real Vette (non Transformer toy) refresh soon...

      In general I like it, a lot. And I like that it still looks like a Corvette, instead of pretending to have been from another era in some faraway land.

      But the back end... it has definitely taken a leap, but I'm not sure the direction was forward.

      And who cares about renderings. They're trying to sell a car, not a rendering.

      So, for the cost of a Maserati GTO, you can make your Corvette look like a Maserati GTO.

      GM should be looking at this closely for design cues they can use on the C7.

      If you are going to change a corvette's body, why change it to look like a slightly different Corvette?

      Why not change it to look like a Ferrari 250 GTO, or that Growler Jaguar E-type revival, or something truly original that hasn't been done before?

      Why spend all the time, work, money, and everything else, just to have a slightly different looking Corvette, when you had a Corvette to begin with before spending all of that?

      Or in other words, why isn't this just a couple hundred bucks for a Corvette body-kit?

      Very original design, I like it.
        • 3 Years Ago
        I was thinkng more along the lines of not very original at all. Looks like a plain ol 'vette with some marussia bodykit and a 612 or 599 rear window/boot section.. There have been many much better executed designs based on a 'vette. Not enough differentiation for my liking. Wasted effort and no doubt countless millions.

        Question: How many does plan to make? He had better start buying up C6s now, the C7 will soon be here.
      • 3 Years Ago
      Still very much a corvette
      Rendering are terrible
      That shadow on the 4th image? Wrong.

      I wish people/companies would take some time and get a rendering right instead of putting out either cartoon crap or junk like this.
        • 3 Years Ago
        Really man?... Thats what you're focused on? The rendering... This is a car blog not an art/production critiquing session. Furthermore, lets see what you can do bud... Atleast this guy is actually being productive and contributing to the car community.

        Having said that... I think this iteration looks great. The rear is a little iffy for me. Alot of black back there and he doesn't really show what the taillights look like or how they function which is a little disappointing. But this is still a sexy machine.

      Hilarious... that first pic with the ocean background is identical to the Maserati GranCabrio pic created over a year ago... and oh, look, the car is a knockoff of the GranTurismo too... no thanks. (I recognize they just used the same background in their graphics program...) Still, I can't blame them--the Maser GT is one of the most beautiful cars ever created...
      • 3 Years Ago
      Maybe not intentional, but those wheels look like a nice re-imagination of the original C5 "wagon wheels." Elegant design, overall.

      I still feel that the Perana Z One is the better of the Italian Corvettes do overs. Although I do have a question, when doing one of these types of projects, is it really that difficult to redo the interior? Some of these just look like they added better quality leather on top of what was already there...

        The Perana is a MUCH better re-skin. This one looks like a mutant Corvette. (Not that its bad, but its not original in any way.)

      1. Take a corvette and barely change it
      2. ???
      3. Profit!

      I'm thinking step 2 is going to be charge way too much for it.
        • 3 Years Ago
        The ultra high price is what will create the exclusivity that some people desire.
      • 3 Years Ago
      looks very TV car to me, like what Barris would do today for a futuristic detective show.
